I currently teach (2010)composition courses at Harper College,Palatine IL, and at Roosevelt University, Schaumburg campus, and am adjunct faculty at both schools. From 1977-85, I was an elected Trustee at Harper College, Palatine, an Illinois community college, and served as board secretary for several of those years. I have a bylined chapter being published in late 2010 in an instructional manual that accompanies The Bedford Guide, (9th ed) a composition textbook for college writers.
